An incredible setup is what you have, it must be one hell of an experience listening to either movies or music.

I just finished reading your thread. Very impressive. One quick question...what type of audio stand do you have? I have been looking for the exact same look.

Thanks, Ted

Stumbled across this thread and just wanted to drop a note to compliment you on your setup I love the whole look of it, and i like how it's so inviting. Your setup puts the HOME in Home Theater (har har ) Great setup, gives me some ideas for mine.

It was a modified ikea LACK cabinet - bought two so I could cut up the long top and bottom pieces from the second one into taller vertical sides and inside dividers as the stock clearance was not high enough. I also modified and used one less vertical divider so I had three wider spaces instead of four narrower spaces as it is orginally designed.

I've since removed it and have the equipment hidden at the rear of the room

Yes a very nice set up indeed. Those B&W 802 Diamonds are beautiful! I am just curious, is there a reason why you have the projector on a stand behind the seats instead of say mounted to the ceiling? Wiring maybe? And do those plants left and right of the front cabinet hide wires or are they just decorative?

You have a fantastic HT and I am sure that you are very proud of. Congrats on knocking it out of the park!

I used a retro-reflective screen (The DaLite High Power), so the projector need to be as close to your eyeliner as possible to achieve the maximum gain.

Even if I didn't, I would prefer this setup to a ceiling mount

I really need to update the pictures, as the front soundstage has been cleaned up quite a bit - the plants were more for wire hiding originally, but now purely decorative.

Thanks... Again Congrats!

Wow can't stop coming back looking at those new Di speakers in gloss back finish. Any changes, update lately ? Thanks

amazing setup you go there even though it's a little clusters.
post #108 of 653
That is one sweet setup you have there. I have heard some of the gear you have, Your B&W speakers and I have a Classe SSP-600. I am sure your system sounds out of this world. Just two quick questions. Is your room treated? If I missed it I apologize. Second, what do you think about Wyred4Sound amps. I haven't really seen them used as main amps before. That is what you are doing right? Do you listen to music with your system(2ch). How would you say the amps do in that regard. Are they really cool running? I know I would probably have a hard time leaving that room .

Are those 803s for side surrounds?? You mad man hahah. Great system! Even with the light on the screen looks awesome!

Room is not treated, except for some inadequate corner traps I built.

The W4S amps (most recent generation) are excellent, have plenty of power and quickness, and work very well for soundtracks and music. Run very cool.

For music listening, I use an M2Tech Young DAC with Apple Lossless encoded music fed from a Mac Mini running Pure Music software.

Yes, overkill - I had the 803's as fronts, and decided I wanted more mid bass so got the 802's. I'm set for a while, I think.

Got get some new pictures up, as the room has changed a bit and the new VPL-VW1000es is now in place...

Cleaned up the front soundstage (moved the equipment to the reared of the room, and routed all speaker cabling through the crawlspace up to the speakers)

Added the Sony VPL-VW-1000ES projector

YOU HAVE THE 1000ES!?!?!?!?!? *cleans drool off keyboard*

btw, the front stage looks much cleaner and allows more focus on those three stellar speakers that makeup the front soundstage.

With all the equipment moved to the back made your theater one of my favorite ones! Eye candy haha

Thanks - the combination of the cleaner look and pain in the ass access to wiring will help slow down my upgrade cycles!

I also added some of sound treatments back to the room (two seen behind the 802's, and two black panels relocated beneath the screen)

Hey Thrang,

Is that the new B&W stand for the HTM2 Diamond??

BTW - the setup definitely looks a lot cleaner and less distracting when looking up front.
